She had something to confess to...

I actually do have a confession, so that lyric makes for a good post title. 
I broke the shopping ban.
Hang on! I'll explain myself. Throughout the post. 

Shirt - Gap, Jeans - Old Navy, Shoes - Gap, Scarf - Express, Ring - Express, Earrings - Melinda Maria, Sunglasses - Chanel

She had something to confess to
But you don’t have the time so
Look the other way
You will wait until it's over
To reveal what you’d never shown her
Too little much too late

Isabel at Walk of Fashion had a ShopBop giveaway and I found out I won! (YAY!). I got the code on Monday, and ShopBop was offering FREE overnight shipping that ended Monday. My last day of 30 for 30 was yesterday. You see where this is going.

Too long trying to resist it
You’ve just gone and missed it
It's escaped your world

Sweater - Gifted, Jeans - Old Navy, Shoes - Gap, Belt - Limited, Bracelets - House of Harlow and Express, Sunglasses - Chanel

Can you see that I am needing
Begging for so much more
Than you could ever give
And I don’t want you to adore me
Don’t want you to ignore me
When it pleases you
And I’ll do it on my own

So I made my order on Monday to get the free over night shipping, and the ShopBop order arrived yesterday. (After I'd taken my last outfit picture, so I was basically done. See how bad I'm trying to defend this?) So, there you go. I broke the shopping ban but it was with a gift card and I wanted the free overnight shipping. I admit it! I'll show you what I got later. Also, I need help making a couple of different photo collages online. Tell me whatever websites or programs you use and recommend! 

Can you see that I am needing
Begging for so much more
Than you could ever give
And I don’t want you to adore me
Don’t want you to ignore me
When it pleases you
And I’ll do it on my own
I’ll do it on my own

Shopbop giftcards are not to be wasted. You rocked the 30X30. As for pictures I used Picasa - you have to download it but it's free.

i don't have a sh*t clue on how to make collages and no matter how many times i beg and plead for help no one's a** comes to my aid. plz tell me if someone helps you b/c then maybe you can help me?

you killed it on this 30x30. i love that top outfit - i thought the scarf was a pile of turquoise necklaces around your neck and i almost started wailing out of sheer envy in the best possible way though.

i'd have broken that shopping ban on day 4 with the purchase of a crate of advil once i realized i couldn't make outfits w/my selections. hats off to you mother!!

ps-i won a shopbop at style obsession. yippeeeee

I absolutely love Ur sunnies, I need a new black pair from Chanel. :)


Amy Z. said...

What! That is so not cheating! You used a gift card! I think the whole shopping ban doesn't count if it's a gift least in my book. And yayyy for being done with the challenge! I can't wait to see what you got from ShopBop!

Miss Caitlin S. said...

k well love your belt, looks great!!! and I accept your reasons for breaking the shopping ban, you made it and did it so time to reward yourself! Honestly, good job and because I enjoy blogs where we get to see the person more, I have liked you showcasing your outfits!

Moniek said...

I really like your first outfit!

Chic 'n Cheap Living said...

I want to see what you got! You were being savvy so breaking the 30 for 30 is totally fine!

Closet Fashionista said...

Cathy Benavides said...

Great outfits! I hope to someday look as good in jeans as you do. And I love the old school Muse. I remember when I got their first album- I was instantly smitten!!

modanista junkie said...

Ahhh no you didn't?!! It happens girl. Don't beat yourself. You look great and you've been doing a fabulous job on the 30x30.


Josie said...

JEALS about the Shopbop giftcard! And you're all done with your 30 for 30 -- yayyyyy!
xo Josie

Oh to Be a Muse said...

i don't think that qualifies as breaking the shopping ban at all. if you didn't do it, it would have been a missed fashion opportunity! congrats on the win.

Couture Carrie said...

Very cute post!
Congrats on your win ~ is my faaaavorite store!



Totally doesn't count since it was a gift card. Can't wait to see what you got! xoxo

ryan said...

Congrats on winning, and totally doesn't count because you won! Special occasion :)

Valerie said...

HAHAHA, I think we can let this one slide. I LOVE the sweater in the last set of pictures. Such a great look. Congrats on winning the shopbop giveaway! I can't wait to see what you got.

shealennon said...

That totally doesn't count as shopping since you won a giveaway! That's exciting!
And I use Picasa to make my collages, simply because that's the only one I know how to use! But It's very user-friendly.

lauren lanza osias said...

ooooOOOOoooo you went shopping. haha. i can't wait to see what you got!!! and it's a gift card, that totally doesn't count.
a giveaway!!! yay!!!

la petite coquine said...

I think you're amazing for having held out this long! No guilt-enjoy the gift certificate and your purchase! But now you'll have to do a special post about what was so divine, you just couldn't resist!

Jess said...

A girl's gotta break the rules sometimes right? What's the fun in doing everything right?? hehe!

Ashley said...

Oh I can't wait to see what you got! I won a Shopbop giveaway a little while back, and I ended up getting another pair of Jeffrey Campbell boots - gotta love free giftcards! :)


Heather said...

Cute outfits! I'm really excited to see what you bought! :)

Fashion Therapist said...

You're only human and 30 days of not shopping is tough. I had a few gift cards that I used, but honestly felt like that didn't count because it was never my money to begin with :)

Jenny said...

Girl, Shopbop gift card + free overnight shipping = you are excused! I don't blame you at all. I can't wait to see what you got!!!!

J said...

I love this outfit!

And congrats on finishing! And I definitely would have used the gift card to get the free shipping, just look at it as technically you didn't receive the merchandise during the 30 for 30, so it doesn't count!

PS - August is too cute in these!

Laura said...

Haha I totally think this is ok and you are in the clear! It was a gift certificate and you were almost done anyways! You did so well throughout the challenge that you deserved a reward :)

Jen HaHA said...

Congrats on winning! Since shipping was free and you used a gift card, you didn't spend right? I think it's technically a no spending rule for the challenge. We can browse aka 'shop'. See, sometimes technicalities are in our favor. But, we're both done with our challenge, so let's spend, spend, spend :D
